5:30 to 8 p.m.
The works represent an awareness of the power of image to engage and inform conversations about identity, self-discovery and personal histories. With skilled techniques and in collaboration the artists encourage each other and the viewer to take a journey of consciousness, challenging notions of reality and dystopia. It made me reflect on the philosophical question: Is kNOWing half the battle?
